As we suspected, Nick Cannon’s stunt yesterday was a hoax. As we reported yesterday, Nick Cannon was trying to prank his radio co-host by tying helium balloons to her dog and flying him over the Hudson River.
Really funny right? This was about as lacklustre as everything else he does.
To no surprise, after he asked fans to look for the flying dog on the radio station’s website, people were unhappy. Tweets poured in scrutinizing Cannon for his “cruel” prank and demanded he be reprimanded if it was true.
Fortunately for the dog, Charlie Roo, it was only a stuffed animal Nick used. This morning Nick took to Twitter to address the issue, saying ”I think I might be getting fired. Radio gone seriously wrong.”
He also made reference to football player Michael Vick who was actually jailed for animal cruelty saying: ”People are acting like I’m (Michael) Vick. I apologize. Now get over it.”
It’s safe to say there was nothing funny about Cannon’s practical joke. What is funny, though, is that PETA actually commented on the issue.
According to MSNBC, a PETA spokesperson stated:
“If bad taste were a crime, we’d be going to jail with Nick, but joking about killing a dog, a kid, an old person — anyone — isn’t cool when there’s always the danger that some numbskull will do it for real…Had it been true, Nick would have PETA to worry about, and that’s far worse than going to Rikers Island (prison).”
Although they never issued a statement, the producers of America’s Got Talent can’t be happy about the public backlash. It’s also a little scary to think Cannon just became a father. Let’s hope he doesn’t pull any “funny jokes” on his own kids.
There’s no denying the fact that both these artists can hold their own independent of each other, but when Drake and The Weeknd get together they’re phenomenal.
After the leak of Drake’s coming album Take Care there have been a surplus of tracks and remixes circulating amongst the blogosphere. Of all those, ‘The Ride’ is my favourite thus far.
It’s one of those songs that sets the mood for romance. Undoubtedly sexy, with serious baby-making potential. If “The Ride” doesn’t make you want to drop everything and check into a Motel 6 with that special someone, you’re dead inside.
Before listening, I suggest opening a nice bottle of red wine, laying out a faux animal skin rug and turning down the lights. Ladies, this song will get you pregnant.
According to the Huffington Post, producers of The Maury Show wants to broadcast the results of the Yeater – Bieber paternity test on national television. A spokesperson for the show commented, saying ”we are actively pursuing this story.”
Amy Rosenblum, the former executive producer of the show also thinks it could be a huge money maker.
“This would be a huge TV event … When I brought the DNA test to TV for the first time on Maury, I had no idea it would still be as popular today as it was then. Maury is trusted by millions of viewers and if Maury told Justin ‘You are not the father,’ everyone would believe it,” she told the Post.
Maury is infamous for his paternity tests and there is no better place to hear those magic five words, “You ARE NOT the father!”
I think we all saw this coming. This story is a candidate for andPOP’s least shocking post ever. However, if it does happen, I can’t wait to see Justin dance when he gets the results. Even better, Usher could join him and they can glide across the stage together as Mariah storms off to accuse one of the 10,000 other possible fathers.
Cee Lo is back at it with another lyric video for his newest song ‘Anyway.’ After the success of Lady Killer, Green is releasing a upgraded version, Lady Killer (Platinum Addition). The shiny new record will also include the new tracks “Love Gun” and “Scarlet Fever”, a collaboration with Lauren Bennett (the party rocker most commonly known for her work with LMFAO) and “No One’s Gonna Love You”, a Band of Horses cover.
“Anyway” was written by Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo and seems to be the antithesis of Cee Lo’s massively popular “F*ck You”. It’s a love song that suggests he somehow worked things out with his last lover or he’s moved on to someone new. Either way, it shows Cee Lo is a little bi-polar when it comes to his love life.
The song is full of hooky falsettos and an easily digestible melody that your co-workers will be humming for weeks. Overall, this is a strong effort from Cee Lo and it yet again demonstrates Cuomo’s versatility as a songwriter. It’s no “F*ck You” but breakup songs are always better than love songs, are they not?
Listen to the song posted below.
It’s been a ridiculous few weeks for Justin Bieber. The Sultan of Swagger confronted allegations that a thirty second backstage de-virginizing resulted in a love child, organized a paternity test AND released a new album. Business couldn’t be better for JB.
Yet again, Justin has returned to the top of the charts with Under The Mistletoe. His Christmas album debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200. According to MTV, Justin has already racked up 210,000 sales in his first week and he’s just getting started.
After he heard the news, JB took to Twitter to share his elation with the world and blow off a little steam, tweeting:
“So this past week and even today every rumor and lie about me possible has been coming out in the press. Just need to ignore it..but even through all the crap and lies my fans have been there for me and i just got word..It is OFFICIAL!! that…
#UnderTheMistletoe is the #1 Album on the BILLBOARD 200 this week!!! WE ARE THE #1 ALBUM!! so to the people making up this BS…SANTA CLAUS IS COMIN TO TOWN B*Tches! #ILOVEMYFANS!! THANK U. Here is the NEW VIDEO as Promised! THey cant break Us!
Stay true to yourself. they can never break us. we are a family. #TEAMBIEBER goes HARD!”
This flurry of tweets was a nice way to celebrate the accomplishment. In 140 characters or less Bieber was able to repeatedly thank his fans and give the h8ters a digital middle finger. It’s a classy rebuttal to all the “BS” that’s been circulating on the internet. Also, it’s the first time we’ve seen Bieber use such colourful language.
It’s nice to see the human side of the teen-Messiah (who normally only shares squeaky clean dialogue with his followers). So, buy his album b*tches and Merry Christmas Mother F*ckers!
According to MTV.com Justin Bieber will clear up rumours that he fathered a child when he returns from a promotional tour of Europe in two weeks.
Earlier Justin’s spokesperson, Matthew Hiltzik told MTV:
“I can confirm that the team has proactively made arrangements for Justin to be tested upon his return and we’re going to hold everyone who is involved responsible.”
Basically, the most influential pop-star in the world is going to hunt down and sue everyone who was involved with this story to the full extent of the law. Not only is he going to empty Mariah Yeater’s bank account (while performing a perfectly choreographed Christmas dance number), he’s also probably going to try and get her locked up for perjury.
If this doesn’t send a message to all the psychopathic teen moms, I don’t know what will. The lesson here is: don’t claim the teen-Messiah knocked you up unless you’re ready to ace the wrath of Usher’s golden goose.
In addition, it probably didn’t help that she called Justin a thirty-second premature popper. I wonder if his team would have reacted the same way if she said he was amazing in bed?
For the first time since the allegations that she fostered a Bieber baby, Mariah Yeater has finally appeared on camera.
Let’s hope The Insider paid good money for the interview because Bieber’s lawyers are most likely going to sue her for everything she got.
In this very ambiguous and shifty interview Yeater insists that she and her lawyers have evidence that Bieber is the baby’s daddy. Note: she can’t say what it is, however, she’s claiming there IS evidence.
This is really starting to sound like a complete fabrication and I’m surprised she has gotten this much attention after her lawyers went MIA last week.
Also there’s something sketchy going on with her upper lip. Is that a pimple? (herpes?) Or just the scars from the piercings she has removed (probably so the judge takes pity on her while Bieber’s lawyers devour her) ?
Watch below and decide for yourself, is this girl crazy or what?
Breaking News! Today Taylor Swift tweeted a photo of her new kitten! (I’ve always wished she would tweet a picture of her… nevermind)
@Taylorswift13 shared her new “roommate” with the world earlier today. In her tweet she announced that her furry little friend’s name is Meredith.
The photo definitely confirms that Swift is legitimately one of the sweetest girls on the planet. Not only does she have a heart of gold that she wears on her sleeve, apparently, she also has strong maternal instincts.
Furthermore, little Meredith probably has no idea she just won the kitty lottery. It must be amazing to have Mamma Swift taking care of you.
So far tweets have been flying around the Internet over her new pet, even Katy Perry agrees that little Meredith might be the cutest kitty on the block right now saying,
“OH MY GOSH. Is this kitty for real?!?!”
Swift replied with,
“@Katyperry YES! And currently chasing her own tail. PS I miss you!”
I think Mrs. Brand sums up my feelings when she finished the discussion with,
“I want to cuddle that kitten so hard”
Well said Katy, Well said.
Grandma Kardashian owes America an apology. Today on Good Morning America, Kris Jenner was doing her usual rounds (trying to exploit her daughters for more money) and decided she was going to comment on Kim’s divorce.
There was nothing really unusual about her comments until she addressed the matter of the 20 carat ring. Kris was adamant that Kim should keep the ring and emphasized her point with a horribly offensive statement:
“I hate an Indian giver. It’s a gift. You keep a gift.”
First of all, I don’t care how ‘old’ you are, but being ancient (and senile) doesn’t give you a license to be ignorant. In addition, who still talks like that?! Everyone knows that phrase has been stricken from the world’s vernacular lexicon and she definitely should know better.
For the record, This “mother” must really love her daughter. And nothing says “I love you” like going on national television to sell out your child while they’re going through a divorce. It must have made Kim especially proud to hear her mom using outdated racist terminology.
Kris Jenner should probably look into correcting this situation immediately. Yet again the Kardashians have proven that they may be one of the richest families in show business but they certainly are not the classiest.
This morning, Justin Bieber stopped by On the Air With Ryan Seacrest to clear up some rumours. Earlier in the month, Seacrest was talking about how Selena Gomez and Justin co-adopted a puppy.
However, today Justin made it very clear that is not the case saying: “Its so funny because people keep talking about this dog, and I don’t even have a dog! I never got a new dog! I don’t have anything to do with the dog. I think he’s a cute dog, but he’s not my dog!” (That’s a lot of “dog” for one quote!}
It’s probably a good thing that they’re not trying to co-own a puppy. That is way too much commitment for a 17- year-old. Justin was very candid and down to earth about the subject, though. Once again, it seems the media (people like us) are yet again just blowing everything out of proportion.
Seacrest then lightened the mood by getting Bieber to prank call an L.A. blow-dry salon called The Dry Bar. It was actually very funny. The girl who answered the phone had no idea it was him calling and there was an awkward exchange where Justin asked if they do “The Bieber.”
You can listen to the full interview on RyanSeacrest.com
The allegations that Justin Bieber has fathered a child stirred up enough Internet hysteria to warrant an official statement from his legal team. As we suspected, this story is most likely false. According to TMZ, reps for the Sultan Of Swagger are denying the rumours saying that the claims are:
“malicious, defamatory, and demonstrably false.”
There are a few celebrities you don’t want to piss off in the entertainment industry and Justin Bieber is one of them. Not only does he have the resources to buy everything you love and destroy it, his legal team is probably even more terrifying. He can afford to hire the type of lawyers that could get Lindsay Lohan off the hook if she shanked someone during another shopping spree at the jewelry store.
What is suspicious, however, is a part of the statement suggesting that there may not have been an actual lawsuit ever filed, saying:
“…we haven’t yet seen the lawsuit” and that they will ”vigorously pursue all available legal remedies to defend and protect Justin against these allegations.”
If anyone is wondering what Maury is doing right now, he’s probably selling a kidney trying to get Bieber to participate in what could be the greatest televised event in history. Imagine the ratings he could get Justin to take a paternity test… If nothing else, it might be a good way to promote his Christmas Album.
However, the Biebs will have a tough time trying to top this classic celebration embedded below:
This is one of the more ridiculous claims I’ve read yet, however, given the nature of the people involved, anything is possible.
Media Takeout is reporting that Kim’s made-for-television 72 day wedding was somehow affected by Reggie Bush. According to the site, Kim met with her ex two days before filing for divorce, saying:
“Kim Kardashian had lunch with her ex-BF Reggie Bush in NYC… According to a person close to Reggie, the discussion at one point turned to whether the pair could ever RECONCILE.”
Media Takeout also claims that their “insider” (sounds extremely credible – pause for sarcasm) also told the publication that Bush:
“…would not do ANYTHING with her unless she was single. She had to get an official DIVORCE before he would ever even consider having a physical relationship with Kim.”
Once again, we’d like to stress that this could be accurate or completely false. What is certain though, is that Bush is undisputedly a better athlete than her ex-husband who has yet to rebound, on or off the court.
Just in time for Halloween, a company called E-Poll conducted a survey to find out who gives America the creeps. The poll surveyed 1100 Americans and asked them to rate celebrities based on 100 different possible attributes. The following list indicates what percentage of the sample group checked off “creepy” for each celebrity.
1. Marilyn Manson..69%
2. Casey Anthony…57%
3. O.J. Simpson….56%
4. Spencer Prat….49%
5. Nadya Suleman…41%
6. Charlie Sheen…34%
7. Eliot Spitzer…34%
8. Woody Allen…..31%
9. Tim Burton……31%
10. Jesse James…..30%
Topping the list of creepy celebrities is a man who allegedly had a rib surgically removed in order to perform oral sex on himself (Marilyn Manson). Also on the list are two of America’s most famous accused murderers (Casey Anthony, O.J. Simpson) and a warlock from planet Awesome (Charlie Sheen). For the most part, the list is fairly predictable. The only real surprise is a neurotic film -maker who fell in love with his adopted daughter (Woody Allen). Perhaps that’s not as surprising as one may think.
Surprisingly, none of the cast members from Jersey Shore made the list. (Personally I thought The Situation was a shoe-in for the top spot.) None of the Guidos or Guidettes even broke the the top ten but somehow Eliot Spitzer has a strong hold on seventh spot.
In addition, the same survey also determined which celebrities have the most marketing potential. Of the top ten listed above, Spencer Pratt from The Hills and ‘Octomom’ Nadya Suleman proved to have the least marketing potential, demonstrating that America will gladly watch these idiots but probably wouldn’t purchase a product they endorse.
These statistics are pretty reassuring. Americans show they haven’t lost the ability to think rationally and I agree with them. I would never purchase anything from a psychopath with a frozen sperm fetish. Nor would I buy anything from a delusional moron still caught in a shame spiral after he and his Franken-Bride were last seen on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.
Well done, America.
If you didn’t get enough of 50 Cent’s stellar acting in Get Rich Or Die Trying, you’re in for a treat.
In today’s edition of ”What the F*ck Were You Thinking?” 50 Cent, Floyd Mayweather and Mike Tyson lower the bar on both acting and product placement. Yesterday the trio released a parody of the tremendously popular movie The Hangover to promote an energy shot called “Street King.” In the video 50 and Mayweather slip their buddy (played by Mike Tyson) a mysterious caffeinated syrup that sends them on an adventure so lame it makes Bieber-Gomez pajama parties look like an all-nighter in the red light district. The crew gets into a nasty pillow fight and Mike Tyson has what looks like a seizure.
Let’s look at both sides to this video:
The Bad: These three have once again proven that rappers and boxers aren’t naturally-gifted actors. It also looks like they hired a 2nd year college film student to direct the video. The quality of the production is on bar with a bad Bar Mitzvah video and there’s even basic continuity errors (ie: Tyson’s Martini glass magically turns into a scotch glass).
The Good: 50 may have accidentally created a very successful viral video. This could be it’s very own FAIL and has the potential to become a joke shared in email chains across the world. Unfortunately, people are going to be laughing at these three like internet memes (see: the Star Wars kid) instead of legitimately enjoying the parody.
So, let this be a lesson to all product-endorsing rappers and celebrities. The DIY approach to marketing isn’t always the best option. Sometimes it pays to hire a proper agency, but in this case, I’m glad 50 Cent chose to do it himself. It’s much funnier this way.
Don’t let her latest music video for “Papi” mislead you. Despite the image of her swan diving into a sea fueled of boner-zombies, J-Lo hasn’t moved on as quickly as you may think.
Apparently last weekend at her concert in Montville, Connecticut, Lopez burst into tears after a song montage that featured look-a-likes of her exes.
This is frustrating for a couple of reasons. First, there is no way it was an impromptu “song montage”. It’s highly unlikely that three professional dancers — who just so happen to share likenesses with Diddy, Ben Afleck and Mark Anthony — just appeared in the concert without J-Lo’s approval. I’m guessing this particular dance number was her idea and so, it makes her emotional response seem slightly over-dramatic and over-rehearsed.
In addition, if this is so hard on her, why does she want to publicly mock the subject at her concert? If J-Lo was really that busted up about the breakup, she would have done what every other pop-icon does when they’re feeling down: drowned her sorrows with a $1,000 bottle of wine and wiped her tears with a box of Kleenex made out of hundred dollar bills.
This leaves me wondering why she wasn’t as upset when the divorce first happened? Perhaps she was too busy with Bradley Cooper to notice?
Apparently Kelly Clarkson attended the Chris Brown school of affection. Let’s be clear, there’s nothing funny about domestic violence and Ms. Clarkson was probably joking but I digress.
While she over-seas doing press Kelly Clarkson was asked about Adele. Bewildered by her overwhelming success and incredible talents, the American Idol created quite the stir today on the Internet. During an interview with the Guardian Kelly allegedly stated the following:
“I want to punch Adele in the face!” …. “She is just too good.”
Her sentiments were meant to be a compliment but didn’t exactly drive home a flattering message. This is the type of rational stalkers use to justify wanting to keep a celebrity locked in their closet indefinitely. Let’s hope “Miss Independent” doesn’t become “Miss Prohibited To Come Within 100 Meters.”
Lindsay Lohan was taken into custody following Judge Sautner’s decision that she has in fact violated her probation. The hearing concluded with Lilo feeling the familiar sensation of cold steel around her wrists as two police officers ushered her away.
Bail has been set at $100,000 and we’re presuming Lindsay is going to come up with the cash herself. If she does managed to scrape together enough cocaine covered singles to make bail, she will have to complete at least sixteen hours at the city morgue before her probation violation hearing on November 2nd.
If you’re not familiar with how the legal system works, in a few words: she fucked up. Let’s hope there’s enough room in the city jails for Lindsay this time, hopefully she’ll get to stay longer than 14 days.
Today’s hearing began with a stern lecture from Judge Stephanie Sautner and things are not looking good so far for Lindsay Lohan.
The cattiness continues in the case of The People Vs. Lilo. The judge is very upset with those challenging her authority and has already stated that the time Lindsay has logged at The Red Cross will NOT count towards her sentence. In addition, she emphasized that “probation is a gift” and that Lilo has been “looking a gift horse in the mouth.”
Furthermore, Judge Sautner brought up Lindsay’s traveling to Milan as well as other parts of Europe and suggested it was a deliberate decision that made her unable to serve her sentence.
The hearing is streaming live on TMZ and unless her lawyer can prove that blowing off nine community service sessions somehow helped society, we’re expecting some jail time for Lindsay when it’s finished.
Upset by the probation department’s decision to side with Lindsay Lohan, the judge presiding over the case has decided to throw her weight around.
Lindsay’s dismissal from the battered women’s shelter must have really set her off because Judge Stephanie Sautner’s latest decision is reminiscent of a scene out of Mean Girls. According to our friends over at TMZ:
Judge Stephanie Sautner contacted Probation officials and told them to immediately yank Lindsay from her current community service assignment with the Red Cross. We’re told Judge Sautner ordered the Probation people to immediately assign Lindsay to morgue duty.
Basically, Lindsay will be mopping up corpse juices and taking in all the sights and smells that one can expect from a morgue. Nothing against “hard justice”, but can we just send the poor girl to jail instead? At least in the big house she’ll have to sober up and the only thing she can steal is an extra bar of soap.
Either way, this is getting seriously catty and I love it! They say the only way to recover from addiction is to hit rock bottom and for some reason, even though she’s scraping dead hobo goop off the floor, I don’t think this is Lindsay’s rock bottom. Herbie: Fully Loaded was.
Last night Shia LaBeouf got a severe taste of street justice after a fat guy beat him like a red-headed-step child (we’re allowed to make the jokes, @itsbooyeah is a ginger).
According to TMZ Shia was involved in an altercation outside of a bar in Vancouver called Cinema Public House when this happened:
Why would anyone want to take a swing at Shia LaBeouf? (Pause for sarcasm to take effect)
Well, you could speculate it was on account of a number of drunken altercations, his DUI, the press junkets where he compares his work in Transformers to cinematic masterpieces like Citizen Kane, or the simple explanation that he is a douchebag. After all, this is the very same actor that has such a severe Oedipus complex he openly stated he would sleep with his mother (if she wasn’t his mom).
Furthermore, he’s a deliberate bohemian that basks in controversy and celebrates confrontation. So, good for you Shia, Napoleon would be proud. The fact that you threw your 105 pound manorexic frame into an ass-kicking and attempted to go for seconds proves that you’re a true warrior. It’s too bad that all those stunt fighting classes never really paid off, but seriously, I’m glad that aside from a bruised ego, no one actually got hurt.
